A student may be graduated from City College of San Francisco with the degree of Associate in Arts (A.A.) or Associate in Science (A.S.) by satisfying the requirements established by the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, the Governing Board of the San Francisco Community College District, and the faculty of the College.

Students seeking the Associate in Arts or the Associate in Science Degree must complete and submit a Petition for Graduation Form to the Admissions and Records Office on or before the dates specified in the “Calendar of Instruction.”

Students should not petition for the Associate Degree until all the requirements are met or are about to be satisfactorily completed in the current school term. 

Students are requested to review the completion of all requirements with their counselor or advisor prior to submitting the Petition for Graduation Form.
